Curriculum Enrichment.

October 19, 2016


Group size – For small groups or full classes; or classes can be combined to make larger groups.

 Timings – Minimum of 2 hour sessions, however longer timings are available.

 Duration – Can be stand alone sessions, short term (4 – 12 week), or long-term / ongoing.

The outdoors can be a great place to reinforce classroom learning in a more practical way, this means points of learning can be further explored and reiterated. Sessions allow for more inclusive learning and help cater to the needs of those more practical and creative learners within classes.

Various bespoke and tailored days can be offered to local schools and where possible these are linked to the National Curriculum. Functional skills are also embedded into days covering any of our various activity themes. Themes of activities can include team building challenges, leadership, decision making, bushcraft and survival, geography, field study skills, navigation, environmental education, ecology, primitive skills and technologies, or growing and cooking food. We have a range of skills and experience within the staff team, including qualified teachers, so please don’t hesitate to make suggestions of other themes you may want to explore.


What they’re saying…

“My year 4 class absolutely loved their Curriculum Enrichment sessions with In Our Element and it became a real highlight of the week. The sessions were engaging, well organised and took into consideration the needs of all the children in the class. There were a really interesting range of activities throughout the term in which children gained lots of valuable skills and knowledge.  I particularly liked the fact that lesson plans were sent ahead of time as it gave me a good insight into what the sessions would entail. I would highly recommend In Our Element to any school.”

“I would like to take the opportunity to thank In Our Element for their hard work and professionalism; and for sharing their wide knowledge of the outdoors, with both staff and children, at our annual Year 5 Hill End Trip. The children really enjoyed the sessions, all of which were appropriately challenging, engaging and fun. The children particularly enjoyed lighting fires and making nettle soup! They were encouraged to take risks and develop their self-confidence and became very motivated as they worked co-operatively and purposefully to make dens; successful outcomes about which they were rightfully proud. All the children enjoyed a huge sense of achievement and pride in a very safe environment.”

“All teachers agreed the Stone Age Day was a great success. The carousel activities were engaging and accessible to all. There was a high participation level and behaviour management of children was good. I felt the timings went well – pacey not rushed. The object replica display had an impressive, original and fascinating collection. Great that the children could handle objects and there were lots of information.”
